that she had the motive to lie cosby's team is hoping to keep the 19 women out of the courtroom, the judge said those accusers will make certain claims and the jury had determine whether they're credible. >> back live here, it does not appear that judge o'neil will be making a decision on those prior witnesses, at least today it, appears he'll take all of this under advisement, starting at 5:00 on " eyewitness news" we will catch up on the latest coming out of here in norristown. live outside the montgomery county courthouse, joe holden, cbs-3 "eyewitness news." >> see you then, thank you. >> overseas now, south korea says north korean leader kim jong un is willing to talk to the usa about giving up nuclear weapons, break through came during meeting in north korea between the two nations, south korea says kim kim jong un is also agreeing to meet with south korea president next month. this morning president trump tweeted progress being made in talks with north korea, may be

food in giving and i'm loving t that story coming up. lauren? >> all right, well, one day closer to the up coming weekend. we'll have some sunshine, quieter conditions, seasonable as we head into saturday. rain looks like it could return even wintery mix late day sunday, seasonable high temperatures through the upcoming weekend in the upper four's to near 50 degrees, of course we have to get through tomorrow first and talking about that nor'easter, more
bring heavy snow and wind gusts cents and of course all on the heals of last week's nor'easter. so one-two punch there. lauren? >> yes, absolutely, good news with this is it is not going to be as big of a wind threat as what we saw on last friday, where we had widespread wind gusts 06 miles per hour, wind gusts maybe at most 45 miles per hour, but still, some concern for power outages, but , right now, all is quiet. as we get live look in cape may, on "skycam 3", some clouds, in the scene, and typically with the nor'easter 's, the shore bears a brunt of this storm. but, as we head into tomorrow, it is actually going to be fairly easy, as far as nor'easter's go along the coast. we're like throw see wind gusts potentially 45 miles per hour, but not a big flooding concern, maybe some minor flooding through this event. and we're going to see the lowest snowfall totals as you'll see mostly rain and sleet along the immediate coastline, but for right now just enjoying some sunshine, chilly temperatures, seasonably so, 43 in wildwood,
45ac, 44 degrees right now in philadelphia, storm scan3, though, already showing indications, of moisture building into the atmosphere, seeing some returns on radar, so that's not hitting the ground, just picking up on upper level moisture moving in from this system, this is a parent area of low pressure that caused the blizzard conditions in portions of minnesota, then it will generate second deer area every low pressure where we are seeing all of the moisture off to the south and west. and all of that energy from both places is going to move into our neck of the woods, as we head into tonight and through the day tomorrow, so your commute this evening, no problems, looking good, tomorrow morning, big difference, areas of a wintery mix, and primarily snow west of i-95. and then tomorrow afternoon, heavy snow, for a good portion of the area. so more specific on the timing rain and snow spreading northeast from about 7:00 this evening, until about midnight. overnight tonight, we will see primarily snow as i mentioned west of i-95. more of kind of rain-snow mix, and then transition over to
snow east, and then as we head into tomorrow morning, we will see the wintery mix, times of rain closer to the coast, then heavy snow as we head through the the afternoon, that will be the peak intensity of the storm, greatly reduced visibility, especially where we have these areas of heavier snow, so future weather showing us as we head into tonight, we start off this rain likely in the city, point east. and we transition over to a wintery mix and snowfall. but again, areas over south jersey, and the shore there is will be primarily rain event and mixing event for you. but off to the west, we will see more in the way of snowfall coming down, and snow heavy at times, so as we head into the afternoon hours, that snow starting to overtake the entire area, that's when we will have the best chance to see snowfall as at the coast, late day tomorrow and tomorrow evening, before this starts to wrap up. as we head into the second half of the evening, tomorrow, but as far as snowfall accumulations cents, expecting ten to 14 inches far north and west of the city. right along and west of i-95, six to 12 inches of snowfall. and pretty sharp cut-off
because of that rain, and wintery mix threat, as we head to the east and south jersey. so about three to six immediate jersey suburbs, further east, the lesser and lesser the totals. pretty high certainty as far as models, consistency, telling us timing of the heaviest snow coming midday and into the afternoon. high certainty also of the significant totals west of i-95. the lower certainty where exactly that rain-snow line is going to set up, over jersey, so that keeps in question some of the south jersey totals. so what to expect, though, as far as downed trees and wires, as we deal with the weight of this heavy snow, especially where we will see those totals up toward a foot, wind go cents of 40 miles per hour already weakens trees and saturated grounds, we could see more power outages, through the day tomorrow. so prepare for what is in store through the day tomorrow then things quiet down, though , still have chance at few flurries on thursday, maybe even a passing snow shower on friday. and then hey, we spring forward after all of this,
this week, we're going to spring forward this weekend ment saturday night into early sunday morning. >> all right, promise spring weather at some point? >> no promises in wetter. >> thank you, lauren. >> showing animals love and attention is one couple's mission. >> meisha has their story in today's love it. >> many people will agree animal friends add so much joy to our life. some argue actually it adds longevity to them. it is well known that charitable giving to our time is not only time well spent it is time that pays dividends. let's meet a couple who does. >> i always had animals growing up. i never remember a time when we didn't have animals. right, eugene? >> same thing. >> every thursday jean and vivian wood volunteer at the s pca of southwest michigan. >> they clean, sweep, change litter, socialize, and love on these furry friend of ours. >> hi, how are you?
>> even playing a bit of hide and seek. >> here comes. they're do-able. and they're very generous. they're kinds. >> the spca here or anywhere for that matter wouldn't be the thriving shelter it is without volunteers like jean and vivian. executive director katie timber says there wouldn't be nearly as many adoptions, either. >> they're more likely to find a home as somebody pays attention to them, socialize z with them, and last night we had three kitties get adopted. that's the rewarding part, see them go home to their forever home. it always makes you feel good. >> but not just about petting their head. >> this one is new. >> the woods can't not volunteer, it is who they are, it is where their heart is. >> it is. i think service is important for people. and to share what we have, and to care for god's creatures. >> amen. still work in action. a simple yet profound words of grand i the greatness after nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated.
kindness is kindness giving back pays dividends, this particular couple volunteer at nearby church and jean also enjoys shovel his local library parking lot, as well, the little things that measure the depth everyone's character not to mention the little things can change entire communities, the woods encourage everyone to volunteer because they believe in this life, we may not always be able to do great things, but we can do small things, with great love, and of course that's from mother mother teresa, and i have to tell you it, sounds like oh, yes, people volunteering, whatever, but when you actually think about what volunteering does, it literally shines life on everything that matters in life. and that's what they're doing. they're truly living successes , that truely is living. so i think they're just incredible. i had to bring that. >> great story, meisha, thanks for sharing. we will be right
>> one last check of the forecast, lauren, tell me what you said will not happen? >> sorry, plan for west specially west of 95 as we head through the day tomorrow tomorrow, likely to see significant snowfall totals as we push out into jersey, lesser, but western suburbs, lehigh valley get ready to break out the shovel. >> can't blame me for trying everybody. >> it was a good try. >> that's "eyewitness news" this noon, for today, i'm jim donovan. >> i'm rahel solomon. for meisha, lauren all of us here thanks for watching.
